  1. honestly, not at the moment. Im new to the OC game and am still uncomfortable on it. Willing to adjust CPU Cooler. I chose the MB based on the IO, I liked the amount of usb ports and wifi. SSD's I need atm.

  4. If you live in the US, it's cheaper to fly to Seattle then rent a car and drive up to Vancouver.
  5. Honestly, they would do US first before they even think about Australia. I genuinely believe Australia will never happen, for the simple fact that as soon as Linus steps out of the plane something dangerous will bite him on his sandaled feet
  6. April imo is still cold, and although Ltx is indoors, traveling will suck. June/July is nice bc it's the summer months and while hot, it isn't as bad as cold. It would be nice to schedule it at a time when hotels and the whatnot are the cheapest. October sucks, bc it starts getting chilly again
  7. Hello friends, General MB discussion topic: With the recent release of Zen 2, AMD is looking to compound its lead over intel. With rumors of ddr5 and the rtx 3000 series, things are starting to heat up again in the market. Acording to Lisa Su, Zen 3 is scheduled for 2020 (if AMD is reliable this time). However, many articles are claiming that Zen 4, hypothetically supposed to be released in 2021, will need a new socket. Now, I don't really take faith in rumors. But with so many compounding factors, such as ddr5 soon to be due (ddr4 came in 2014, 7 years after ddr3.
  8. True. But the core item I'm concerned about is the mb, as that dictates the cpu and ram. I like amd as they make their mother boards last as long as possible with their backwards compatible cpu. If I bite the bullet on AM4, and if AM5 does come out, then I'll have to buy a new mb to compensate when I get my new cpu
  9. True, but I will also amass even more funds by then to compensate technically, right? Compounding on my existing funds
  10. True, but here is my issue: ddr3 came out in 2007, and ddr4 came out in 2014. If we take that logic, a new, faster iteration comes out every 7 years. Thus, we are expected to get ddr5 in 2021, a mere 1.3 years from now. Any current mb won't handle that. It is the promise of a overhaul such as that, that has me concerned. I want to make this pc as long lasting as possible, so the mb is crucial
  11. They are kind of similar. Cpu locked is the games graphics and fps are run on the cpu rather than gpu. Ex: 7 days to die
  12. I agree, and in truth, I really am not stuck on rtx 2080ti, I'm just trying to make this future proof as much as possible. Hence my main concern for am5. I can run the next gen of cpus from that motherboard than upgrading. Also, the money issue technically shouldn't be a problem future case, bc I was a student then. Now I have a job, but also now have loans, which is why I am overcompensating and equating the 2 salaries.
  13. Honestly probably 80/20 gaming. Many of the games I want to play are cpu locked though. My main concern is, if AM5 does come out in the near future, that mother board can last me a loooong time then, right?
  14. Just gaming, and finance stuff. The reason why I want such a high powered cpu is because many of the games I want to play are cpu locked
